Spacious beach house in prime location above the bay with wonderful coastal views.


Originally built in the 1950s, Carne Crest is a prime example of a seaside residence that has been developed to maximise the potential for holiday use. A ramp rises from the parking area to the wide decked terrace, immediately suggesting the relaxed enjoyment to be had there. Enter the house into the large open plan reception room, where patio doors open onto the terrace and the amazing view over the beach and along the coast to West Pentire and beyond. This dining room is on a large scale, as is the fitted kitchen, perfect for entertaining.

Dark wood units contrast with pale wood surfaces attractively in this bright, white room. Integrated Bosch appliances and a wide island/breakfast bar form a convenient kitchen. Adjacent, is the alternative entrance, a patio door from the barbecue terrace into a spacious utility and boot room, with plenty of space for boards, wetsuits and beach paraphernalia. A side door also exits to the barbecue area on the sheltered perimeter of the garden.
Here also, a twin bedroom with en suite shower room overlooks the rear garden. Beside the kitchen is a large double bedroom with en suite bathroom looking onto the rear garden. Leading off the dining room is a double bedroom with en suite shower, the wonderful sea view and a patio door to the front deck.

From the kitchen a door leads to the hall and alternative entrance to the house. This is also generous, practical space for a cloakroom, a laundry cupboard and stairs to the first floor. Here is also the remaining front facing double bedroom with en suite shower, sea view and sliding patio doors. Across the hall is another large, dual aspect double bedroom and en suite shower.

Stairs arrive at a huge first floor open plan reception room where the versatile space currently incorporates a space for table tennis, a sitting area and a beautifully appointed kitchen with Bosch and Fisher and Paykel appliances. There is ample fitted storage and the view of the bay above the kitchen sink would distract from any food preparation. The striking feature here is the view from the balcony and the amount of light that streams in from all angles in this lovely room.

Beyond the kitchen is a delightful twin bedroom with Velux windows seaward and to the rear garden view.
Finally, the principal bedroom suite is at the rear, with a nicely fitted bathroom adjacent and a patio door opening onto a footbridge into the rear garden.

The configuration of the house is such that it could be divided by locking the door from the ground floor kitchen. A separate set of steps enters the side door into the hall and both sections of the house would be private.

Carne Crest is designed to be comfortable and contemporary, with pale décor (white walls, white wooden floors) and high-quality fixtures and fittings, such as bathroom suites and lighting. Maximising the natural light also makes this a bright and welcoming interior.

The footprint of Carne Crest stretches across the garden with narrow paths to either side. However, the plot extends behind into a raised lawned garden with mature shrubs forming a protective hedge and a secure fence. This is the highest point of the property and a great spot to enjoy the peace and quiet of the open countryside and the grandeur of the coastal view.
At road level Carne Crest has excellent parking: three individual garages and three designated parking spaces on hard standing. There is an EV charging point.


On the Atlantic coast between Padstow and Newquay, the village of Mawgan Porth is set around a stunning sandy beach at the seaward end of the Vale of Lanherne. Very popular with surfers, the wide expanse of sand and access to the coast path makes it perfect for families and coast walkers too.

Overlooking the beach are Bedruthan Steps Hotel and the award-winning Scarlet Hotel & Spa. In the village there is a cafe, surf shop, convenience store, an inn and a farm shop. A short distance to the south is Watergate Bay, with a two-mile stretch of sandy beach that offers excellent facilities including the Extreme Sports Academy. To the north are the superb beaches of Porthcothan, Treyarnon, Constantine and Harlyn. Within easy reach is the championship Trevose golf course.

Connections are excellent, with Cornwall Airport just minutes away providing regular flights to London and other UK and European destinations. Trenance is on the northern edge of Mawgan Porth, on the way to Padstow.


From Truro take the A30 eastwards, until the A39 slip road signposted to Wadebridge. Stay on A39 until Trekenning roundabout, take the first exit and continue on the A 3059 until the right turn to Newquay airport on the B3276. Go past the airport to a T junction and turn right for Mawgan Porth. Pass the beach, follow the hill up into Trenance, until a left turn, (with a phone box beside it) into a lane that forks to the right into a private no through road. Take that private track and go around the corner to the wide parking space and three garages belonging to Carne Crest, on the right.
